An unusual patch of reeds and willow at the top of Pry Cove - just east of Kite`s Carn - provides a different habitat much favoured by Sedge and Grasshopper Warblers in summer.   The sheer cliffs of Hail Dinas. This lovely area is reached by taking the path to the Logan Rock from Treen village, then going a little east along the Cliff Path.
The walk from Treen village to the cliff is approximately one mile.

White-fronted Geese (very unusual here), Black-headed and Herring Gulls feed on a stubble field.   Great bird habitat where the fields border the clifftop. A tangle of gorse and ferns at the top of Hail Dinas Cove, Treen Cliff.

Travel Directions

From Penzance , take the A30 for Land`s End. Roughly 3 miles from Penzance, turn left at Catchall onto the B3283 (St.Buryan). Continue through St.Buryan ; two miles southwest of St.Buryan the road traverses Penberth Valley , at the top of the hill on the far side of the valley turn left to Treen (Logan Rock).

From the Land`s End area, take the B3315 (Porthcurno) off the A30 half a mile east of Land`s End ; continue through Polgigga and carry on past the Porthcurno turning . Just after the entrance to Trendrennen Farm on the right, the road starts downhill (Hangman`s Hill). Take the sharp right turn at the bottom of the hill to Treen (Logan Rock).
Two paths leave Treen towards the cliff ; one (the larger path) works its way past the Camp Site and reaches the cliff above PednVounder beach , whilst the second path takes a more southeasterly route across fields to emerge onto the cliff at Treen Castle , on which stands the famous Logan Rock.

Both routes disect arable farmland and - particularly in autumn - the fields , some of which are invariably stubble , are alive with flocks of Finches and Skylark , with Meadow Pipits also occuring in good numbers.
